Thread: A bit of news.

  1. #1

    Default A bit of news.

    Found out today from the Lieutenant Instead of leaving for afgahnistan on the 22nd of april, supposidly they are transfering me to another unit in the battalion. the other unit is supposidly going to kuwait end of may early june time frame. kinda of a pain in the A$$, tired of getting jerked around and not informed.

    be nice to be home with the daughter and the wife, but at the same time, im not going to be with my buddies. dont know anyone in the other unit, or the command.

    just kinda of a PITA for me right now.

    point is, ill be around for another couple of months.

    Dang man sorry to hear about this. That is good news your not leaving yet but I can see where that would be very irritating. So that means you still stationed where you are at now though?

    Well that the government for you. Never well prepared or informative. I hear Kuwait fuel is cheap though so maybe you can find a chv truck and do some dand brodies.
    Spend all the quality time you can with family until your departure and that will make it a bit easier to stomach.

    Wow, that sucks. If you were heading to Afghanistan still I'd have asked where. If you were in the Kabul area we could have met up. Sorry to hear it's going down like that for you. Deployments are hard enough without being jerked around at the last minute and everything changing.

    Waiting is always the hardest part, but you already know the military's motto "Hurry up and Wait"
